Orange Crush

I was about to post a mega blog, but my pictures aren't loading. After these 3 pics, blogger just decided to stop accepting my uploads. 
So I'll just go with these three. I LOVE my nails. I have a serious crush on them it is true. I don't care if I'm too old for this color as was uttered last night (not towards me but a friend of mine said her manicurist dissuaded her from this color because it was too young for her. She's my age.) Moving on. 
Jeana Sohn took these pics of my hands texting yesterday at our photoshoot for an exciting new little venture which I cannot write about yet, but Jeana shot it for us. (No, I'm not talking about the Closet Visit film which she is also shooting right now. She is the busiest woman on earth.) I also think my Oli & Me jewelry looks stunning.  That's the lion ring (which is my newest piece of Grace Lee's, the woman behind Oli & Me, and is part of her new collection not yet available on the site), along with her black diamond bracelet and the gold cuff bracelet. Gorgeousness. I'm a lucky girl to know these talented people.
Another talented person I know is Jasmin Shokrian. She made this bright green, silk circle dress pictured above. I was going to wear it to HBT's wedding yesterday, which you can read about here. But I put it on, approximately 10 min before I was to leave the house and I realized it was too casual for the elegant wedding I was attending. I freaked out because I didn't have a back up outfit and I was reading a poem at the wedding which meant that all eyes would be on me for a solid 3 minutes for sure. Aye! So I called my go-to fashion rescue friend Deb Kaplan and said, "Help!" I sent her these snaps from my phone and she agreed it was too casual with the nude shoes/belt combo (picture 1). She told me to try and dress it up, which I tried with my vintage YSL jacket (picture 2), it wasn't quite right. Then I tried my own wedding day dress - the one I changed into after the ceremony. I hadn't tried it on since 2002 when we got married. It was good, DKap said but I definitely couldn't wear the white jacket with it (picture 3), or I'd look too bridal. So I wore the white lace dress over a black slip with a black blazer and it worked. If I find a pic of myself with final outfit, I'll post it. But I was in such a hurry that when I found something that worked, I flew out the door instead of snapping another pic.
P.S. how gross is my mirror? That's from Oscar brushing his teeth in the hallway mirror, I was in a rush to get fashion advice, I didn't have time to clean it. Sorry.

People should wear want they want regardless of age. You love the nail polish color, then you go for it. Who makes it btw, Essie?

Ah ah, I am certainly much older than you (49 to be honest) and I began to put orange polish on my nails this spring and I cannot live without it now and received a lot of compliments !

Those orange nails are classic and modern at the same time...and ageless...don't pay attention to the nonsense.

Love the orange on you. As far as being 'too old' to wear it:
it's all about context. I understand what they meant...but I disagree.
Bright orange nail polish is a detail for what you were wearing overall...which knowing you- was I'm sure very cool yet elegant.
Love the Jasmin Shokrian dress-beautiful!

Vee said...
